Hi Robin,

We live about 20-30 minutes from tenterden by bus. Is this too far? We live in the bigger town of Ashford. We have a son of 6 who is learning French. Both my husband and I have a dbs. I am a nurse and my husband works for the government. I speak a very little French (from school time). We would love to have you. We have a really happy, friendly family and we laugh a lot. My number is 07969 694101 or you can get me on this email address [email protected]

Dear Sir or Madam,

My name is Robin DETOURNAY, and I am 20 years old. I am a french student in an engineering school specialized in the transport. And during 4 weeks, between the 1 June 2015 and the 28 June 2015, I will do an internship within the Kent and East Sussex Railway as a volunteer.

However, I need to find an accommodation for this period. Do you know some contact or addresses not far from Tenterden?

To my mind, an host family will bring me many benefits such as improving my English, understanding the tradition and the culture of the British family, ...
I am ready give a financial contribution for the bed and the meal, to give help in the house, and if the family has children I can teach some french.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Very best regards,

I am organising for the 3rd year for a group of French students to come and stay in Tenterden. They will be here from 9th until 22nd july and I need to find Host Families in Tenterden or close villages to accomodate them. It is usually a placement of 1 or 2 students per family, the children are out all day and the remuneration vary between £179 to £343 depending the number of students staying in your home. Please contact me if you need further information.
